This is one block (of 24 needed) to make a horse quilt.  I love tesselations (one block used for the entire quilt) and this one really sparked my interest.  It is paper pieced.  Look closely, can you see three horse heads?

Hope you likey!

That is so clever!  At first I thought the purple parts were the horse head/reins but then I wondered where the ears were.  Now I see that the three seperate colors are three horses!  I love how the piece makes you think and I can't wait to see the finished product Smiley.

Neat! Very unusual block.

That reminds me of a song that starts "My papa he has three horses, black and white and dapple grey, sir!" Just substitute mauve for grey, and it's good to go!  Grin

This is awesome.  This is really too awesome.  I've wanted to make my dearest cousin a horse quilt for years, but found all patterns either too babish for her taste, or too "wild-life shirt circa 1993" for mine. 

Where did you get such an awesome pattern?

I got the pattern from http://www.jinnybeyer.com/freepatterns/freepattern_viewer.cfm?category=000166EC-4E9D-1269-A60300017F005857&productID=0007CCE1-5654-1269-A60300017F005857&axis_v=2and under the pattern page it is called "Sport".  The foundation pieces are there for you to cut out and sew or use those to cut pattern pieces to sew individually.

Best of all the pattern is FREE!!  Gotta love free stuff

Haha. I can't wait to see the finished quilt!
